A few words from The Shouting Mute –

I am a performance poet and artist. I consider myself an activist in the promotion of inclusive theatre practices. I promote self expression and creativity in everyone and by working inclusively I aim to show that the arts belong to us all. I strive to raise expectations of the capabilities of disabled people and those marginalised by society. I celebrate a culture of inclusion within my work and believe that through the arts everyone can have a voice to recount their stories and experiences in this world. I hope others see me as a role model whereby my positive actions and character help to create a more inclusive culture in the future
